Maddy in Stretch

Added Aug 6, 2008

by northernligh...

Luleå, Sweden






A tighter Maddy top made in jersey. I took the Maddy pattern and took away the zipper in the back. Instead the fabric has a centerfold. I narrowed the pattern by 1,5 cm both in the midback and at the side seams. I used a t-shirt of my own as reference to get the fit somewhat right. The inset is made from “tubes” of jersey ribbons. It is a little heavy, probably should have made it with less material.

Material Notes

Light jersey

    Nice top! I did not like the Maddy until I saw yours. The inset detail is very nice.
